Check the control knobs, make sure they are not turned all the way on high. If not and you have ice building up on the panel below the one with the fan, you will need to go back inside where you replaced the fan and replace your defrost heaters also. It will be bast to replace the defrost thermostat while your in there. It only cost around $15.00 and will save you trouble later. You could see both of these parts behind the panel the fan is in. The heater in you model is a cal rod type, made of the same material that ele stove elements are made of. You can ohm it and if it has no resistance, it's bad. If it does then the defrost thermostat is the one bad.

Try replacing that evap thermistor. The diagnostics on thermistors can be wrong. If it is rounded on the end, replace it. There is a damper between the freezer and refrigerator. There may be a refrigerator fan motor in the damper assembly, It could be bad. It could be a bad control board. When you run diagnostics there is one function that checks all the fans.

Not freezing enough


You might have ice building up on your evaporator coil. That ice serves as an insulator and prevents the internal freezer temps from going down to design parameters. The ice buildup is caused by the defrost mechanism not working - check the timer or the defrost heating element.

My true cooler freezer in side fans dont turn on i run it for 15 min. the make is gdm-72f


first place to look is in the evap where the defrost/ fan delay is located. It is usually attached to the "U" tube on the evap and senses the temp. It prevents circulating warm are after a defrost. It could be bad and keeping the fans from running. Start there and let me know if I can be of further help

Ge profile side by side fridge - fridge not cooling/freezer fine


The problem you are having is what is called defrost. This unit is supposed to do a defrost every 8 hours. If it fails to do so the coils will get a heavy heavy frost on them and the evap fan cannot circulate the cold air thru the freezer and into the fridge. you will need to defrost the coils with a hair dryer. Will probably take about 45 min.'s to a hour. The most common cause for this is the defrost heater located at the bottom of the coils. Replace this and you will be fine to go. Part number is wr51x10101

HELP!!__CALLING ANY GE FACTORY TECHS


You say " all thermistors check fine " , how did you check them ? Did you check for the 5-8 DC volts at the main control board , for the thermistors ? Did you do the diagnostic check for the thermistors from the control panel ? I'm sure you know there are 5 thermistors , since the refrig has the dual evap . Possibly the # 5 is bad , since it is the freezer temp " controller " , yet if it tells the board it's not cold enough , it still sends refrigerant to the refrig evap . Since the refrig evap has 2 fan motors , can't remember if there is a damper there also . Maybe when the # 3 thermistor is satisfied , it only cuts the fans off , even though refrigerant is still going thru the refrig evap .

Refrigerator is not getting cold although the freezer appears to be working fine


can you hear the evaporator fan motor running in the freezer? this fan motor pushes the cold air from the freezer to the food section to keep it cold. you may have to replace the evap. fan motor. also, check for any kind of ice build up around the evap fan motor.

It's a Kenmore alright


Do you have any frost buld up in freezer compartment?if so sounds like a freezing issue.If no frost build up is your fan running in freezer part if not you may need evap fan or a manual defrost.Your fan may have ice stoping it from turning.If your fan is running you may need to pull off your start switch located on your compressor.Shake it around if you here noise like burnt parts in it you will need a start switch.And remmember never turn your fridge up full blast normal is good or you will freeze it up. Good luck:)
